The prayer ‘Our Father’ in this tape is chanted to the accompaniment of a dull drum-roll. An integrally chanted prayer, but with the inevitable repetitions and striking sub-titles. The actors become stylish representatives of the worshippers and the worshipped. ‘Our Father’ is a twentieth-century version of a universal prayer, which appears to approach that of the historical Gregorian original.
